Unions expect government to respond to demands within 14 days
Labour unions are expecting the government to respond to their demands within 14 days or else they would continue with their strike action.
On Wednesday, South Africa’s biggest labour federations including Cosatu, Fedusa, and Saftu joined hands together to take a stand against corruption in the country.
The unions are urging the government to make a more precise plan in order to fight against gender-based violence and for the regulation of the taxi industry.
“Our criminal justice system is completely dysfunctional. The main victims dying on the streets are women and children. They die and their bodies get dumped all over. Our children are being raped and killed. We have had enough of that, and we want a functional criminal justice system,” said Saftu general secretary, Zwelinzima Vavi.
Vavi sounded a note of warning that more mass action could happen this year.
